Facebook has released a new map which shows the most talked about teams of the Sweet 16, with Dayton covering large swaths of the country.

Dayton even knocked off local favorites Baylor in the battle for Facebook supremacy in Texas. However, the Bears still found their way onto the map in America's heartland by beating both the University of Nebraska and Omaha-based Creighton in the opening weekend (safe guess: those Facebook mentions were not particularly positive).

All but two teams were able to snag a state, with Michigan State and San Diego State bested on their home turf by Michigan and UCLA, respectively.

Florida was Nevada's most talked about team, because handicappers hearts are not swayed by Cinderella stories.
